Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story by D.T. Max
Rate this book
Clear rating
Whew! This was a slog. The storytelling is so painfully slow and dry, it's a bit of a strange fit for an author whose work was so unconventional and dynamic. I made it through out of sheer stubbornness. Still really do not feel like I got any real in ...more

There is nothing I can say in a book review that could do justice to the terrible beauty and wisdom of this book. Just read it.

Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson

This is a fantastic coming of age comic for tween girls, I loved every page. Super cute drawings and a great heroine everyone will root for.

American Savage by Dan Savage
Rate this book
Clear rating
Savage is at his best when writing about sex and LGBTQ issues. The politics I could do without - not because I disagree (I don't) but because he's just not that original or engaging on topics like gun control, abortion rights, etc.

White Like Me by Tim Wise

I spent the first half of this book feeling like I was sitting in the choir for the sermon (and getting bored), but toward the end I felt more engaged. Still, Wise's writing style is SO verbose that I can't say I enjoyed reading this for even one min ...more

Much simpler (textually at least) than the other Barry books I have read, but very good.

Smile by Raina Telgemeier

Since the story had largely to do with dental work and tooth trauma, this read like a terrifying horror story for me. But dental fears aside, it's also a sweet coming of age story with great drawings. Very enjoyable.

Fun Home by Alison Bechdel

Clear rating
A masterpiece of the form, this book is smart, funny, moving, beautiful. Bechdel's interplay of images and text to tell her story is seamless - you can't imagine one without the other.

John Holt
“Leaders are not, as we are often led to think, people who go along with huge crowds following them. Leaders are people who go their own way without caring, or even looking to see, whether anyone is following them. "Leadership qualities" are not the qualities that enable people to attract followers, but those that enable them to do without them. They include, at the very least, courage, endurance, patience, humor, flexibility, resourcefulness, stubbornness, a keen sense of reality, and the ability to keep a cool and clear head, even when things are going badly. True leaders, in short, do not make people into followers, but into other leaders.”
